In this webinar, we learned how your health system can better respond to the needs of your community by cultivating a more inclusive and participatory approach to partnerships.

You will hear how it has been well-established that people’s sense of control–or agency–over their lives is important to their health. Yet most health interventions are designed to provide services for individuals and communities, potentially diminishing agency–and hence health. Drawing on practice-based research, Bridging Health & Community has surfaced 12 guiding principles for how health systems can instead create change with communities. You will be introduced to a tool to help you put these principles into practice by cultivating deeper participation in developing and carrying out community health efforts. Through the experience of Jefferson Healthcare in Jefferson County, Washington, you will see an illustration of how this tool can be used to take stock of how you are–and could be–approaching community health priorities more effectively.
